Officials have arrested a local DJ in connection with last week's car crash that killed two in Coral Gables.

Ervens Prudent, 26, was charged with DUI manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter for the June 9th crash, according to a Coral Gables Police news release.

Officers from the Coral Gables Traffic Homicide Unit obtained the arrest warrant Friday night after toxicology tests revealed Prudent was driving under the influence, the release said.

Prudent rear-ended another car last Saturday that had stopped at a traffic light on Southwest 8th Street and Douglas Road. Both people in the other car, 44-year-old Maria Martinez and 34-year-old Marlon Gutierrez, died on scene.

Prudent is known as DJ A.O.L. in his North Miami community where is a producer and songwriter.

He was placed in custody at Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is still recovering from injuries he sustained in the crash, the release said. He will be taken to the Miami-Dade County Jail after he is discharged.
